TYSON (2009)

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Weekly Preview -

Show­case, 4.50pm ★★★ This pro­file of for­mer heavy­weight cham­pion boxer Mike Tyson is not your reg­u­lar sports doco. It is the filmed equiv­a­lent of psy­chi­atric ther­apy, with di­rec­tor James To­back doc­tor­ing his pa­tient’s con­fes­sions to fas­ci­nat­ing ef­fect. Tyson has a habit of chang­ing the sub­ject and con­tra­dict­ing him­self. But the film’s prospects are given a pow­er­ful boost by the sheer num­ber of bizarre chap­ters in Tyson’s life story. LP
